I've personally been wondering why some keys don't seem to work for me
at the console or anywhere else for freebsd.  the primary offenders are
the non-alphanumerics like backspace often gives me "~" instead of a
backspace, The home/end pgup/pgdown and arrow keys in vi give me fits,
etc...  did i choose the wrong keyboard type at some point?  i've looked
through the keyboard configuration options in sysinstall but other
choices seemed worse rather than better. i don't think that's what i'm
looking for is it?
